The Green Bay Film Society is scheduled to show the powerful documentary about the Armenian Genocide, Aghet (2010), at 7 p.m. Wednesday (April 15) at the Neville Public Museum. The International Film Series film will be introduced by UW-Green Bay Curator of Art Stephen Perkins. During the discussion period he will be joined by Levon and Ani Saryan, who will provide an Armenian perspective. The screening of Aghet, by the German filmmaker Eric Friedler, takes place during the same month in 1915, 100 years ago, in which historians say the then-Turkish government initiated the genocide that would claim the lives of 1.5 million Armenians from 1915-1923. The documentary counters genocide-deniers by referencing German and U.S. diplomatic dispatches and eyewitness accounts, as well as footage that has never been seen before. The April 15 session is free and open to the public.
